Quiet sushi place on Jewelers Row. Nice and quiet on a Monday night. The sushi was very good and the platter fir 2 is really a good deal, definitely enough food for 2 hungry people. We had a very full meal for less than $60.
We absolutely loved this place! The staff was extremely friendly. The service was amazing. We got our food so fast. Every single thing we ordered was delicious. We will definitely be back!!
We loved Kotosushi - super fresh and delicious sushi at a reasonable price.
We enjoyed fried dumplings, udon noodles and 3 specialty rolls. All of the rolls were fresh and delicious. Our server was attentive and friendly. I’ll definitely return.
We tried 6 different sushi rolls everything was amazing and delicious. Try miso lobster soup and sweet heart roll. Can't wait to go back. We try to get here at least once a month. Wish we lived closer so we would be there once a week.
Great sashimi and fish salad
Fantastic service and amazing food. Very chill for a 6:30 on a Friday but it was still a great atmosphere. Definitely would go back.
My husband & I ordered the Koto Hibachi - delicious!! The service was great, the food delicious. We will definitely go back. On our way out, the owner introduced himself and thanked us. Nicely done!!
This place is amazing! We tried it for the first time last week and we will definitely be back many times after that!
The sweet heart roll is the best, so delicious. The Caterpillar roll also very yummy. All the rolls are great and BYOB too.
My daughter and I dined here on a Friday night. We enjoy Japanese food even if not the most adventurous dishes. We started with a variety of veggie sushi and Agedashii Tofu, then I had the tuna sushi and she had the Yaki Udon. Plus the Chef brought out a fish dish for us to sample. All the food was great. Very fresh. The service was wonderful if only a bit slow (although we were more than a bit hungry). The restaurant is simple but very clean and well decorated. In the end I was surprised that our meal was only $59 plus tip. We will definitely be back.
We decided to try this restaurant when in Philly for the day and had no expectations. It was such a pleasant experience! The Manhattan roll and Lobster Dynamite roll were both spectacular and the pan-roasted Chilean Sea Bass, let me just say OMG! We will definitely return to this cute little establishment and recommend it to anyone visiting Philadelphia.
Staff was very welcoming and accommodating plus, the food was great!
Greeted and seated as soon as we arrived. Everything was fresh & well prepared. Food artistically displayed. Service was friendly and courteous. We look forward to coming back again!
Thanks so much!! Had an excellent experience
Amazing food, as usual. This place never disappoints. The sushi is so fresh and flavorful and the service is friendly. The spicy tuna pizza and lobster buns are absolutely incredible!
This is our third visit to Kotosushi. A very welcoming experience, お帰りなさい, coupled with fine native Japanese food. Plan to return.
Very welcoming and friendly staff. Food was delicious. Sushi was fresh and tasty. Tempura shrimp was crispy and flavorful. Prices were reasonable. Server was so accommodating. Even brought us a sample of a new dish from the chef. Our only negative was the lack of air conditioning. It was a steamy night. The doors were open for ventilation but really needed ac on.
Love the tempura chicken, heavenly! Staff is incredible, really tops!
We love going to Koto! The food is always excellent and the servers are so sweet and attentive. Everything always comes out of the kitchen looking beautiful and tasting even better.
Amazing menu, food, and staff. Great for date night, and it's BYOB. Will come back!
Sushi is always excellent every time we eat here (this was our fourth visit in past 5 months).
We have tried several different rolls at each visit and all of them were yummy, fresh and delicious.
Sumai and green tea ice cream also yummy. Friendly staff and BYOB too.
We love going to Kotosushi for dinner. Staff is so nice and the sushi rolls and salads are great! We love trying something new or one of there specials when we go. JJ the owner is so friendly and welcoming.
The best dumplings and Asian food we have ever had in the city. Excellent place. Incredible service! Remember to bring your own bottle.
JJ and his staff did it again. The ingredients in our sushi were all very fresh. The food was beautiful to look at and the flavors were delicious. The staff was attentive to our needs but never smothering. All in all, it’s a great meal at a reasonable price.
Their sushi is some of the best in Philly. We usually order the Sushi Sashimi combo for two and there is enough fish for both of us. If you don't want to spend a couple of hundred bucks, this is the place for you.
Second time here and loved it again.
Perfect for dinner before a show at the Walnut street theater, it's within walking distance. Sushi is always fresh and delicious. Tried the shumai.appetizer this time which was also yummy. Pleasant staff, nice ambiance and a Byob too.
There was a lot of choices which is great since I do no eat sushi. The 3 people I went with did and loved it. The poke bowl was delicious and ingrediants fresh. My only complaint is that the ginger side salad was so tiny! It needs to be at least double to triple the size. The owner does everything and was so nice.
Also, no handicap entrance. Can the restaurant at least make a ramp? Thank goodness I was able to walk up the stairs with help since I use a walker because I would never have been able to eat there.
Great food great service nice place to have sushi before the show at the walnut street theater right around the corner! We will definitely go back
The staff was attentive and courteous to us! They even gave us a free appetizer. Sushi and sashimi were fantasic.
The food was just okay. We’d go again, but only if we were in the area and hankering for sushi. It’s not the sort of place you’d make a special trip for. More of a reliable neighborhood joint.
The value was great.
So so good!! Reasonably priced! Can’t wait to go again!
The sushi was so fresh and delicious it just melted in your mouth. The Caterpillar roll and tuna roll were the best. The fresh lobster roll was great too. Definitely coming back here before our next show at WST. Wish we lived closer so we could eat here more often. BYOB.
As always, the sushi is great, great service, friendly servers, all around great meal! We ate sushi, and had an awesome miso lobster soup for an appetizer.
Wonderful meal. Excellent food. Like it much more than other places we have tried, will be back even though it is more of a trek from our place
Good people... Thanks Jojo... Fish great... Fresh flavorful. Sashimi large pieces. Selection of fish moderate, but all good great value. Jewelers Row, Sansom.
Great food, attentive service. Had sushi and the individual nigiri as well as rolls were tasty and inventive. Very reasonable prices. Looking forward to visiting again and again.
Had a great experience! Took my 9-yo out for a birthday date to this location and Walnut Street Theater. The staff we very friendly and efficient. Food was delicious and not expensive. Following our meal our server asked if we were in the area for Christmas shopping, and I explained the reason for our visit. He excitedly rushed to bring a mochi dessert and sing happy birthday to my daughter. Then, he surprised her with a balloon animal, which was totally unexpected and made her feel so special! There were a few other parties dining but the restaurant was calm, cozy, and comfortably quiet. I would definitely recommend this for a bite between shopping or before/after a show at the theater. We will definitely be returning!
